Art in Heat

June 30 to July 30, 2007

Scott G. Brooks

Scott lives and works in the U Street neighborhood of Washington, DC. Originally from Flint, Michigan, he earned his undergraduate degree in Fine Arts at the University of Michigan in 1983 before moving to the DC area in 1990. In addition to his career as a fine artist, he has illustrated several children's books, including The Three Armadillies Tuff and The Ring Bear. Several more are slated for 2007.

Scott's paintings and drawings are described as twisted, offbeat, sentimental, and disturbing. Subject matter ranges from simple portraiture to intricate narratives. He takes social, psychological, and political issues and coats them with a wry sense of humor.
